Three things made today's hike fantastic. First, Ann joined me. She is a good and adventurous hiking companion. Second, most of the hike was new. Third, the scenery was stunning.
While hiking this Sunday morning, I was quite productive. I was able to listen to 8 chapters of scriptures, listen to the framework of the Sunday School lesson we will do at home today, enjoy a wide range of spiritual music, and of course, enjoy the beauty of creation.
If you were hoping this post was about some awesome recipe of how to cook chicken while camping out on a mountain, then you will likely be disappointed. Nope, this post is about a 6' 3" chicken. Me.
While hiking this morning on the west side of Big Baldy, I looked out into the valley and saw a splash of light from the rising sun. It dawned on me, pun intended, that the light was funneling through the canyon almost like what a flashlight would do.
On a nice Sunday afternoon I decided to go back into Rock Canyon. I couldn't get anyone to go with me because the forecast was calling for rain and maybe thunderstorms.
I made a video of some of my recent images. It really doesn't have anything to do with Easter other than today is the day I am publishing it and it is nice and relaxing.
As soon as I got out and shot some lazy pix from the bridge that crosses the river, I knew I had to do more. In fact, I went back and got a few more lenses and then started to really work the scene.
After a long and stressful day at work, where I was on video calls almost the entire day, I was ready for the great outdoors. Both Mother Nature and Rock Canyon did not let me down.
Again, my morning commune with nature and the outdoors took me to a wonderful experience of nature, beauty and relaxation.
